The ImproTech Paris - NYC 2012 workshop is dedicated to the exploration of the links between musical improvisation and digital technologies.

Gathering researchers and artists from both research & creation scenes, it favors the idea of using digital intelligence as a source of continuous and sophisticated creation, in a complex interaction with live musicians, as opposed to mere decorative digital effects.

Distributed over 3 sites (Roulette, NYU, Columbia) the event combines concerts, presentations, demos and workshops and features such great artists as Roscoe Mitchell, Steve Coleman, George Lewis, Geri Allen, Bernard Lubat, Margaret Lancaster, Steve Lehman, Vijay Iyer, Mari Kimura, Esther Lamneck, Raphael Imbert, Lori Freedman, Brice Martin, Laurent Mariusse, Sylvain Roux, Les Emeudroïdes and many others (see the List of participants and the Events Schedule .)
